Wednesday, May 29, 2019- Veteran radio presenter, Cess Mutungi, has announced her departure from Capital FM after a decade.
The Chris Kirubi owned radio station has been struggling and her exit is part of the ongoing restructuring in a bid to revive its dwindling fortunes.
Taking to twitter, Cess, who has been hosting the evening show dubbed the The Jam wrote:
During her career, Cess has often courted controversy from ridiculing Charity Ngilu when she was Minister for Health’s CV which saw her fired to rumors of sleeping around with a popular CEO.
She would later apologize for humiliating Ngilu’ who is currently the Kitui governor.
“I regret it I have personally apologised to her but I realise now that it does not matter what we all think, when people have worked hard through the experiences of life and made it, they deserve a pat on the back,” she wrote on social media.
Besides cutting off senior presenters who no longer appeal to the youth, a reliable source intimates to us that the station has announced a 25% salary cut to all staff.
Former Citizen TV presenter Joey Muthengi has been lined up to replace Cess in the fading afternoon show that used to command a huge following.
